We went to the toy museum to escape the rain when at the castle the entrance fee was very cheap! Good selection of toys some of them v v old we really enjoyed looking round. Don't miss the barbie section up the stairs that is the best bit! Hundreds of barbies from past and present!

Fantastic little museum in the Prague Castle grounds. Interesting to see some of the toys from the Communist Era as well as plenty of other things that anyone will remember from their childhood. Good value admission cost as well.

The wife didn't want to go in but I said it only cost a couple of pounds (or less) what was there to lose? She agreed and enjoyed it. We spent about 30 minutes browsing the cases and then went upstairs to see the Barbies. I had a look for a couple of minutes but she was stuck up there... More

It is interesting to see the evolvement of the toys across centuries and what is more interesting is the upper floor where you see the history of barbie. But i'd have prefered it were more organized in a story kind of way. It is nice to visit anyway while strolling down from the castle

The toy museum is a gem that's hidden in plain sight. Inside the Prague Castle grounds, the two flights of stairs you have to climb to get into it is well worth it. Lots of antique toys and things that many of us had never seen before. If you're a fan of Barbie, you absolutely cannot go wrong but there... More

This museum is located at the Prague Castle. It is the showcase of unique toys including traditional Czech toys and some historical toys from different parts of the world probably from 18th to the 20th centuries, including the oldest model trains and accessories, model airplanes, trains and cars.

The exhibits were one thing, nice enough - the actual value is in what memories they evoke. A must-see in Prague.

I was thrilled. I felt like a child again. As a small girl I adored Barbie dolls, and this is the real kingdom of Barbies. The entire floor is dedicated to them. Museum is located in the Prague Castle, near the Golden street. Ticket price is 70 czk (less then 3 euros) for adults and it's not included in the... More

Supposedly the largest collection of toys in the world including one floor dedicated to the Barbie Dolls . Some toys dating back to the 18th. Century . Interesting collection of miniature steam engines and associated add-ons . The Barbie collection took up one floor and had every conceivable one from the first through Snow White , Elvis , Bill Clinton... More

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
